Will Meekin, director of commercial and business affairs for V2 Music Worldwide, will leave at the end of August and is hoping to launch an independent consultancy for the music and entertainment sectors.
V2’s chief executive Tony Harlow is reviewing the position before deciding on whether to seek a replacement or to change the structure of the department.
